Why juice? Juicing is the best way to get the nutrients from many different vegetables. More than likely you will not eat a half a head of cabbage, three celery stalks, several leaves of kale, two to three carrots, a cucumber, a handful or parsley and a potato. But by juicing you could drink this before you even have breakfast. How many fresh vegetables do eat every day?
Juicing helps you absorb all the good nutrition, including antioxidants, from vegetables and fruits. Most of us have impaired digestion from years of improper food choices. This limits our body’s ability to work properly and absorb the much needed nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Very little digestive energy is necessary to process fresh fruit and vegetable juices so your digestive system will get break and all the nutritional goodness will get in your system quickly.
The best thing about juicing is that you will get more greens than you ever have before. All green vegetables like asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, brussel sprouts, celery, cucumbers, green cabbage, collard greens, green peas, green beans, kale, green olives, parsley, leeks, romaine lettuce, sea vegetables, spinach, Swiss chard, and turnip greens are sources of chlorophyll and make excellent green juice. Chlorophyll is what makes plants green, and it is probably the most powerful element that exists in our universe. It increases the flow of oxygen to all parts of the body, purifying the blood, liver, helps with gastrointestinal problems, emphysema and kidneys.
Juicing provides a excellent source of live enzymes. Enzymes are vital in converting food into body tissue and energy and are also involved in metabolism, so juicing will increase metabolic rate. When food is cooked, processed or heated over 115 degrees, enzymes are destroyed. Raw foods and juice, especially greens, are essential to maintain healthy enzyme levels.
Not only will you reap major health benefits from juicing, but your energy level will be high and noticeably steady throughout your day, without the need for caffeine. Most people also notice a healthy glow to their complexion, clearer, smoother skin and clear eyes after only a few days of juicing. The results will amaze you!
